The Wars of the Roses are over and King Edward IV rules England. But his brother, Richard, is in no mood to celebrate. With murder, deceit and dark humour as his weapons, Richard overcomes friends and foes alike to seize the crown. But as the body count rises, he soon learns that a throne founded on blood offers little security.


Antic Disposition stage a thrilling new production of Shakespeare’s darkly comic drama in London’s ancient Temple Church for a run of fifteen special performances.


Located in the secluded and tranquil heart of London’s legal quarter between Fleet Street and the River Thames, Temple Church was built by the Knights Templar in the 12th-century and is one of London’s most beautiful and historic buildings. Known for its unusual circular design, Temple Church recently gained fame as a key location in Dan Brown’s novel, The Da Vinci Code.


The production arrives in London following a tour of six historic UK cathedrals, including Leicester Cathedral, where King Richard was recently reinterred following his discovery buried under a nearby car park.
